Yep. Here's his blog about it, complete with downloads.

Go to his blog, here, for downloads: http://ben-lee.com/blog.htm

My new philosophy is that a crappy tape deck somewhere plays a greatest hits collection of strange and tender moments, lost, stranded, and forgotten. I'll meet you there.

[hey, check it out, ben lee made me de-lurk myself from this place]

as a huge fan of against me! i can't say how much i dislike the new album. i hate to be all "they signed to a major lable. they sold out." but the truth is, they signed to a major and they put out a lack luster album. it's not even a third of what 'reinventing axl rose' is. i've listened to this album only a handful of times since i bought it. so when i read about this on punknews.org i was really hesitant but i like it! i like it a lot. i'll probably end up listening to this version much, much more than the original. i'm really happy right now. [although i think the point of 'americans abroad' is lost a little with ben singing it. an american singing "americans abroad. americans abroad. i hope i'm not like them but i'm not so sure" is totally different than anyone who is not american singing it. -but it's kinda funny if you think about it- ]

i give it  \m/ \m/ \m/ \m/ out of 5.
"if i'm not acting excited that i was invited it's because i'm kinda not"

I like his cover album. But I like his new album, "Ripe" even more - did anyone else get it? It's great. I love "Numb".

Numb's my favorite track off of Ripe, too!
Love Me Like the World Is Ending is a close second.

After a few listenings I don't much like Ripe, maybe that'll change though.
